An announced bout between "The Ultimate Fighter 6" castmembers Ben Saunders and Jared Rollins has been moved from UFC 86: Jackson vs Griffin, on July 5th, to the undercard of UFC 87: Seek and Destroy.

The transfer was recently made on the official fight cards for the pay-per-view events.

UFC 87: Seek and Destroy takes place on August 9th at the Target Center in Minneapolis, Minnesota. Headlined by a welterweight title bout between champion Georges St Pierre and Jon Fitch, the event also features Brock Lesnar versus Heath Herring and Kenny Florian versus Roger Huerta.

Any logical reason for the fight? There is no reason these guys should be in the UFC, and if this makes TV over somone who deserves I'll be pretty disappointed.

sucks for me
i thought they would move the silver vs guillard, or gurgel vs miller or bucholtz vs hill bout
lousy fights, with this and the wilson card being moved
now ufc 86 has 9 fights not 11
i hope they are adding at least one more good fight,

I more than agree, I dont mind Rollins but Saunders has not impressed me at all I dont see why this is even on the card?

I'd read that this fight was scrapped so I'm glad to hear it's back on.I was actually impressed with both these fighters.With Saunders on the show;the guy is huge for ww and has a good ground game.With Rollins on the TUF finale against Koppenhaver;that was an awesome battle of attrition.
